Product Description
This is a lesson/hands-on activity based on the description of the Ewell residence in Chapter 17. It does, in fact, require that you collect some materials, but I found all of the items within a matter of minutes in my home.

This activity is fantastic for tactile learners, since it involves actually building with materials, as well as those who love group activities and a little fun competition.
It makes the students engage with the text and complete a “close reading”, prompting students to look up vocabulary words, if necessary. It also forces students to stop and really visualize the scene, which is a pretty important one, since it’s where the crime takes place. There aren’t too terribly many times that literature lends itself to true “hands-on” activities, but I think this one worked really well with my students! There are some follow-up group questions to answer, as well.
